A great quantity of waste materials can be generated during the operation of a farm, materials which have been difficult or costly to dispose of in the past. There are now alternatives to dumping or burning plastic farm waste, by recycling them through accredited voluntary product stewardship schemes. Plasback and Agrecovery both run recycling schemes for a number of different types of farm plastics, and Agrecovery also runs an agrichemical take-back scheme for unwanted or expired farm chemicals.
Agrecovery: Agrecovery is New Zealand's solution for the safe disposal of unwanted agrichemicals, and the recycling of empty containers, drums and IBCs
Chemicals: Free or subsidised disposal for unwanted chemicals. Keeping old or unwanted agrichemicals stored on your property presents an unnecessary risk to staff and family, livestock, pets and the environment. Don't leave them lingering for the next generation to deal with - book them for collection!
